Make Way for Captain Thunder!
The Captain Thunder story that appeared in issue 276 of Superman was to originally feature the first team-up between Superman and Captain Marvel. DC pulled the story and replaced it with this pastiche because they weren't ready to run the story. Presumably, they were geering up for the All-New Collector's Edition of Superman Vs. Shazam! that ran a couple of years later.

Roy Thomas later used the name Captain Thunder for his own creator-owned series Captain Thunder and Blue Bolt published by Hero Comics in 1987 through 1988.

Superman's Full Nelson stymies the powerful Captain Thunder!When Willie Fawcett rubs his mystical Indian belt buckle and shouts "Thunder" -- a thundering "Sha-Boom" and a magical starburst transforms him into Captain Thunder -- a super-hero from an alternate DC dimension. Captain Thunder was given his belt of power from Merokee, last of the great medicine men of the Mohegan tribe.
